    Re: Nvidia unveils palm-sized single SoC version of the DRIVE PX2

    So currently there are 75M cars sold worldwide annually, which isn't what I would call a massive market for the semiconductor industry to start with. Samsung on their own ship more phones than that per quarter.

    The thing is, self driving cars will create autonomous taxis which would for many people take owning a car from a necessity to a luxury, and lots of people won't bother. The car market is currently growing really slowly, so it wouldn't take much to turn it into a shrinking market, and that is what it is surely going to become. I can see a market for maybe 10M intelligent cars per year. Cheap cars may die out from pricing pressure from autonomous taxis before the technology filters down to the lower levels, leaving just taxis and luxury cars.

    I look forward to letting my car drive me long distances, and I wish Nvidia well in getting a slice of that market.

    While in a looking 100 year into the future type perspective I think you are right for now this is a pipe dream. From someone living in a small town that doesn't even support a train service or a bus more than once an hour how is going to support a fleet of automated taxis any time soon without a massive culture shift (We barely have any regular taxis!). I can see something like this taking off more rapidly in London and similar large cities sooner but its not going to happen elsewhere for a long while yet!

    Tesla are talking about making their cars pay for themselves with something like this...

    You buy your Tesla, you enable it to work as a taxi when you aren't using it.
    Someone wants to make a trip, they get their phone out and put in the journey details. Your car works out if it can do the trip within it's allowed taxi hours, and if it can it drives itself to the pickup, does the run, drives itself home.

    So it isn't about a fleet of taxis, it is down to whether one of your neighbours wants to lower their motoring costs.

    Kind of a tangent but this would bring up an interesting tax consideration!

    Interesting point! Given how many people get their cars on some sort of lease agreement, it could perhaps be built into the lease. If the lease company get the money, then it would be lower lease payments rather than income. Kind of like "saving" in an offset mortgage.
